uDig 1.4.0 Released

The uDig Community is pleased to announce the release of uDig 1.4.0.

This release offers some great new features including the long anticipated GeoScript editor (thanks to HydroloGIS (http://www.hydrologis.eu/)),  a full featured graticule map decoration (thanks to Kenneth Gulbrandsoy), and a new Document view (thanks to LISAsoft (http://www.lisasoft.com/)).

Thanks to Galdos (http://www.galdosinc.com/), lat-lon (http://www.lat-lon.de/) and LISAsoft (http://www.lisasoft.com/) for their participation in OWS9 (http://www.opengeospatial.org/projects/initiatives/ows-9). Their extensive quality assurance work has allowed uDig to enable WMS 1.3.0 by default.

On the development front the SDK now functions as standalone target platform complete with Eclipse and GeoTools source code. Thanks to Sam Guymer for this work, and to community members Suraj Patil and Thomas Dolley for testing. We also offer our congratulations to Kenneth Gulbrandsoy for his promotion to committer status.

The release is issued under a dual EPL (http://udig.refractions.net/files/epl-v10.html) and BSD (http://udig.refractions.net/files/bsd3-v10.html) license and marks our initial contribution to LocationTech (http://locationtech.org/). No further releases are scheduled under the Refractions (http://refractions.net/) banner.
